Thai massage’s basic science & techniques came to Thailand along with Buddhism in the 3rd/ 4th century B.C. from India. Thai massage has over the course of centuries been preserved and developed not only as a tradition but also as a living science, as part of a health-conscious lifestyle.

In Thai massages cautiously performed stretches and pulls relieve the rigidity and tension of muscles and joints and improve the flexibility of the body. After a session of massage, one feels fresh and flexible, the body movements become easier and the rigidity of muscles eased further.

Thai massage simultaneously relaxes and stimulates the body and the soul. Massage directed at specific parts of the body helps to provide stress relief and relaxation. Thai massage improves the blood and lymphatic circulation as it works on the energy lines/ meridians, which help in the detoxification of the body & stimulates the sympathetic nervous system/ internal organs, enhances/ accelerates and supports the functioning of the internal organs and creates a balance in the energy system of the body.

The masseur does not use his muscular strength for exerting power but his body weight and technical methods developed over the course of thousands of years. The tradition of Thai massage forms a natural part of day-to-day life - Spiritual as well as physical care of body, mind & soul.
